Nicky,

Hopefully, folks will come in and talk about how to control humidity, and the effect that may have on your guitar.

But just in terms of your saddle: I would suggest buying a spare saddle blank and working on that to get the action height you want - don't sand the fitted saddle because if you go too low then you have nowhere else to go! It always makes sense to buy a replacement saddle and work on that, leaving the original saddle alone. Also, you can use the original saddle as a guide when shaping the new one. With your non-adjustable neck you may find that you want a summer saddle and winter saddle anyway (that's what many players use to do before humidity control was a thing).
